Problem 54214. To Bet or Not to Bet

Given your current poker hand, the visible cards of your opponent's hand, and the total number of cards being dealt (5 card stud or 7 card stud). Determine whether or not you are likely to not lose the hand (output 1) or otherwise output zero. Your hand will be a matrix of card values (1:13 two=1, ace=13) in the first column and suits (1:4 clubs:spades) in the second column. Similarly for opponent's hand. Total cards (either 5 or 7) will indicate 5 card stud and 7 card stud. Since this is a Monte Carlo, I provided some slop in the answer. I performed 40,000 iterations for each hand, so the slop should be sufficient to cover reduced iterations (such as my reference solution which only did 3000 iterations each).
